Generic Personalized Stamps.  No more personalized sheets will be sold with blank labels, due to the emergence in the internet of privately printed sheets with non-acceptable designs (indecent, political, etc..).   Now, collectors have generic sheets to buy, printed with Phlpost designs.   Those who want to have personalized sheets can go to PostShop, MCPO, where a photo booth will be available to take one’s picture.  A design may also be submitted for printing, subject for approval.

The first to be issued with generic designs are the Revalued 2016 Manila Central Post Office Personalized Stamps.  With a delayed release of February 1, 2017, some 2,000 sheets were printed of which 500 with generic designs;  the rest of 1,500 sheets are now available for personalization.  We recently learned that two stamp dealers from Manila were sold this issue with blank labels by mistake.  None were sold after this mistake.
